If you receive payments of the solidarity tax credit and you owe a debt to the government, the Tax Administration Act allows us to use those payments to pay your debt.

However, if the family income used to determine the amount of the solidarity tax credit to which you are entitled is less than the maximum family income shown in the table below, we will use no more than 50% of the amount of each payment of the credit to pay your debt.

If you receive social assistance payments from the Ministère du Travail, de l'Emploi et de la Solidarité sociale, we will also use no more than 50% of the amount of each payment of the tax credit to pay your debt.
